Our Aims

A couple of years ago the children, parents and staff created a set of aims to tell everyone what our school is all about. At our P5-7 assembly this week we took a look at our school aims (that nobody could remember!) and asked if we were still happy with them, do we have too many, and what might we be missing? We’d now like to involve all parents/carers in the process and would like you to look at the list below and select your TOP THREE aims for our school.  Please leave a comment with your selections and we’ll add your suggestions to the children’s and look for any overlaps. If you feel something important is missing, please leave a comment sharing your thoughts. Thank you in advance for taking the time to help shape our vision for the school. Crown School aims to be a place where:-

  • Everyone feels happy and safe and treats each other fairly
  • We listen to each other and respect everyone’s views even if they are different to ours
  • We work with and learn with our families, people in the community and across the world
  • We all keep learning about how to be healthy and feel good about ourselves
  • We continue to be an Eco School
  • We take part in challenges so that we can use our own ideas and be creative
  • We do tasks, including fun tasks which are at the right level for us and help us to be successful now and when we are grown-ups
  • Our successes in school and out of school are celebrated
  • Everyone looks after our school buildings and the grounds and works together to make it a very good place to play and learn in
  • Our work is displayed for all to see
  • There are displays that help us to learn and remember things
  • We want all of the grown-ups in our school to be really good at their jobs and get any training or help they need to be the best.

  1. hi there – i think that the top 3 are particularly important but I think that you could probably combine the top two to bring down the number of aims a bit. It might help to have a word down the side where each letter represents one of the aims, that way it would be easier to remember what they are! e.g. LEARNING, L is for Listening and Respecting everyone’s views, E is for eco school or whatever…just some thoughts 🙂

  2. Everyone feels happy and safe and treats each other fairly

    We listen to each other and respect everyone’s views even if they are different to ours

    We take part in challenges so we can use our own ideas and be creative

  3. 1.Everyone feels happy and safe and treats people fairly!

    2.We listen to each other and respect everyone’s views even if they are different to ours!

    3. I have two for three:

    We work with and learn with families, people in the community and across the world!

    And

    We all keep learning about how to be healthy and feel good about ourselves!

  4. Everyone feels happy and safe and treats each other fairly

    We do tasks, including fun tasks which are at the right level for us and help us to be successful now and when we are grown-ups

    We listen to each other and respect everyone’s views even if they are different to ours

  5. Crown Primary School should aim to be a place where:

    The environment is positive, stimulating and challenging, and whereby EACH AND EVERY child is given an EQUAL opportunity to gain a FULL primary education to develop their bright young mind, independence and social skills, with the tools to make it happen.

  6. Everyone feels happy and safe and treats each other fairly

    We want all of the grown-ups in our school to be really good at their jobs and get any training or help they need to be the best.

    We listen to each other and respect everyone’s views even if they are different to ours

  7. 1: Everyone feels happy and safe and treats others fairly!

    2: We continue to be an Eco School!

    3: We listen to each other and respect everyone’s view even if they are different to ours!

  8. Everyone feels happy and safe and treats each other fairly because its important that we enjoy coming to school and we want to be able to trust people and feel safe so we must treat others the way we would like to be treated to earn that trust and so others can feel safe.

    We listen to each other and respect everyones view even if it is different to ours because its important that everyone has a say and we need to involve everyone so we must listen to what others think.

    Everyone looks after our school buildings and the grounds and works together to make it a very good place to play and learn in because this one covers a lot and it says we work together and thats what Crown Primary School is all about and we want to be eco and look after our school grounds

    3. We listen to each other and respect everyone’s views even if they are different to ours

  16. My choices, not in any particular order:

    1, We all keep learning about how to be healthy and feel good about ourselves

    2, We take part in challenges so that we can use our own ideas and be creative

    3, Everyone looks after our school buildings and the grounds and works together to make it a very good place to play and learn in

    And that’s about it, but above all stay happy & try not to be too selfish!!

  17. My choices are:

    2. We do tasks, including fun tasks which are at the right level for us and help us to be successful now and when we are grown-ups

  18. Hiya!

    Our top three are:
    1. Everyone feels happy and safe and treats each other fairly.
    2. We all keep learning about how to be healthy and feel good about ourselves.
    3. We do tasks, including fun tasks which are at the right level for us to be succesful now and when we are grown ups.

  19. Some aims can be amalgamated, but we have a top two from the list, plus one fundamental aim that we feel is missing:
    1. Everyone feels happy and safe and treats each other fairly

    2. We want all of the grown-ups in our school to be really good at their jobs and get any training or help they need to be the best.
    And perhaps most importantly….
    3. To provide the learning environment that enables every child to achieve and reach their full potential.

    1. Thanks so much for your ideas! Potential is an interesting one and causes a lot of discussion – when you think of potential what does that mean to you?

  20. My best choices are :

    1. Everyone feels happy and safe and treats each others fairy.

    2.We listen to each other and respect evryone ‘s views even if they are different to ours.

    3. We continue to be an Eco school.

  21. Similar to most, I believe “Everyone feels happy and safe and treats each other fairly” is one of the most important aims – as children need to feel this before they are in the right frame of mind to enjoy learning.

    Also “We work with and learn with our families, people in the community and across the world”. Children learn from and with their families as well as the wider community. It helps their learning and emotional growth to experience and respect other people’s cultures.

    Thirdly, “We do tasks, including fun tasks which are at the right level for us and help us to be successful now and when we are grown-ups”. Children need to have the right tools for going out into the adult world, emotionally and educationally.

    I think a bit more could be said about equality – gender stereotyping within school needs to be seen to be challenged.

    Thank you for including parents and carers in this discussion!

  22. I agree with Christa that the first two are important but I’d pick number 3 rather than number 9 as the last aim. Crown is a diverse school in that there are many families with overseas connections but I think more might be done to learn from these. We all have something to contribute!

  23. I think that the 3 top aims are:

    – Everyone feels happy and safe and treats each other fairly
    – We continue to be an Eco School
    – Our work is displayed for all to see

    I cannot think of anything else to include.

  24. My top 3 would be:
    – everyone feels happy and safe and treats each other fairly.
    – We do tasks, including fun tasks which are at the right level for us and help us to be successful now and when we are grown-ups
    – we want all grown-ups in our school to be really good at their jobs and get any training or help they need to be the best

  25. We listen to each other and respect everyone’s views even if they are different to ours,

    We do tasks, including fun tasks which are at the right level for us and help us to be successful now and when we are grown-ups,

    We want all of the grown-ups in our school to be really good at their jobs and get any training or help they need to be the best.

  26. My choices are:

    Everyone feels happy and safe and treats each other fairly
